TED STATES REVIEW, we intend to replublish all
the state papers extant on the question of state
rights as announced in the Virginia Resoiutions
of '98 and '99. The publication will embrace
also the works of standard writers, such as
John Taylor of Caroline, whose works are now
ndarly out of print. These valuable political
data will be carefully collected, and when com
pleted, will furnish a complete constitutional
history of our Federal Union. The subscrip
tion list of the " State-Rights Register" (the
prospectus of which was issued under the ap"
probation of the Democratic members and
senators in congress) will be fmrnished regular
ly with the Review from this date, and we hope
each subscriber will feel that he is performing
a duty to a great and sacred political principle
by extending the list of names already on our
It is time for us to go go back to those pure
principles upon which the great fabric of de
mocracy rests; principles originated and defined
by those who created, and best understood the
true meaning of the constitution. It is time
that the friends of state sovereignty should ral
ly around some common nucleus, to resist the
wild latitudinarianism of the age, and evident
tendency of the republic towards concentration
-to end at best in a mixed monarchy. It is
time for each states-rights man to feel that he
must give his own personal individual influence
to the defense of the very corner-stone of our
We send the Review to the subscribers of
the State-Rights Register, and feel confident
that they will respond heartily to the call.
The true Democracy have a great battle to
fight, a great principle of self-government to
uphold, an inspired Constitution to defend.
May each one of us feel that it is an individual

SOUTHERN QUARITERLY REVIEW.
T' HE FOLLOWING RESOLUTION was
J_ adopted by the Southern Commercial Con
vention, held in Charleston, in April, 1854.
RE:soLvJiE, That the Southern Quarterly Re
view, published in the City of Charleston, by
a native of Virginia, and edited by one of
the most distinguished literary gentleman of
the South, being the only Periodical of that
character, printed and published in the Sou
thern States, and having always defended the
institutions and interests of the South, is on
titled to the patronage of the Southern peo
ple, and this Convention eanlcestly recom
mend it to their favorable consideration.
This Periodical is the only one of its class in
the entire region of the South; and its pages
are referred to as the best evidence of the abil
ity of the South, and its capacity to give ex
pression to the feelings, the interests and intel
ligence of this section of our country. Its
purpose is to fairly represent ourselves, and not
to misrepresent others. It aims to maintain
the truth as we understand it, and to assert
the intellectual equality of our section, while
at the same time it will free the mind of our
people from that literary thraldrom and de
pendence under which they have too long la
bored. We claim then, from all lovers of the
South, and friends of a truly home literature,
that support of our work which will enable us
to give it a free course, and thus make it emi
nently worthy of the world's admiration and
our own pride. C. MORTIMER, Publisher.
